I had been wanting to use my Peony Scrolls stamp set from Altenew, so I stamped up one of the flowers with my Tim Holtz distress inks. I stamped it onto watercolor paper, and used a watercolor brush and ink from the pads to add shading and dimension to the stamp. I punched the gold panel along the right edge with a Martha Stewart punch. The cream and blue panel down the center of the gold panel is a die. I gave the card dimension by raising the leaves with foam tape, and the flower as well. The Happy Wedding verse is from the same stamp set, and is raised with foam tape as well. Not to difficult, and lots of fun to make.
I am entering the card in the Altenew card challenge for May, which is From Places Abroad - Tunisia. You can check out the challenge on the Altenew blog at http://altenewblog.com/2015/05/02/may-challenge-from-places-abroad-tunisia/ .
Here is the inspiration picture:
That's it for tonight. Extra vitamin C, Vicks, and my box of tissues and I are heading off to bed!
I'll be back tomorrow with a couple more cards I need to take pics of.
